More Alternate Versions?

  • We’ve created versions of this coloring page that use the word “mummy” instead of “mother.” Here are those links for the boy version and the girl version.

Mother’s Day is a holiday that honors moms. The date varies in different countries, but in the United States is held on the second Sunday in May. Some Christians recoil at the commercialization of the celebration, but most church make a point to honor moms. My church usually plans a Baby Dedication ceremony for that same Sunday.

On our website, you can find free materials for Mother’s Day. These includes songs, crafts, and Sunday School lessons. The kids in your Sunday School class will enjoy this Mother’s Day coloring picture. Otherwise, this Mother’s Day coloring sheet would also work well in children’s church as a follow-up to a Bible lesson about Mother’s Day.

    Fantastic! One and only downside for me is that in Australia we spell ‘mummy’ with a ‘u’ but i think we’ll be okay ;) blessings from down under!

    I love these pictures. Thank you! I would like to use them for my homeschool co-op kindergarten class. Would that be okay? There are 18 children.

    I am going to be doing Childrens Church the week before Mothers Day. I have found an article on the way mothers day got started. I have searched for pictures for the children to color and give to their mothers on mothers day. These pictures are perfect, I can give the boys and girls each a different one, plus the fact that they are thanking God for their mothers. These are my favorite pictures, I thank you very much.

    Thanks Mandy for your artwork. I printed it as a card so kids in my ccd class can give their moms a personalized mother’s day card.
    Keep it up and God bless you…
